Trump Watch August 26 2017

Day 210:

Shit Meet Fan:

Cat 4/5 hurricane hits Texas, Trans people banned from serving their country, and Donald Trump Racist In Chief pardons Racist Joe Arpaio….all done under the cover of night, on a Friday, while a giant hurricane is going on.

This my friends is what it looks like when the system is so broken, so one sided, and so unfair that we end up with a demagogue in office.

Trump is the symptom of an illness that has been feverishly burning through the american people since the 70’s, with roots even further back.

The only way to fix this problem, is to replace nearly everyone in government with better representatives.  Progressive normal folks who care about the normal working class people of this country.

That or we perish.  The next election in your area might be the most important one you ever vote in.  As will be the one after that, and the one after that.
